My ice maker is jammed. I have taken apart the

My ice maker is jammed. I have taken apart the ice tray and believe I have figured out the problem. Would anyone have a diagram of how the ice tray should be put together. More specifically: The plastic cap at the back end of the ice tray should fit over the corkscrewed metal rod. Should the cap be centered over the end, or should it be offset? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    Problem solved. If anyone else comes across this issue... The plastic end piece that connects to the metal rod can come loose and jam. If the metal piece lodges across the plastic piece, then you need to pull the rod back so that just the small end bent section of the rod is in the plastic piece. The plastic piece should rest in the center of the metal rod end coil.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

There are three common problems with icemakers:

There's no ice
Small or too few ice cubes
Specks in the cubes

Ice maker tray will not rotate and dump ice. It tries to, but only moves very little. What can I do?

I am a retired service technician. There is a strong possibility that you have a jam. Often ice makers become jammed with cubes that have not dumped. I have also found a plastic sandwich bag that has jammed the ice maker. So, first inspect for a jam.
If there is no jam then the plastic gearing is broken in the motor module.
Hopefully it is just a simple jam.

How to remove Kenmore ice maker 363.59572994?

I sure hope you got an awesome deal on that refrigerator. I would hate to think they charged extra for the mouse :-) Unfortunately, the ice bucket in this model does not just slide out like your other one did. You should be able to remove the front cover & flap of the ice bucket to reveal the ice maker and yes, it is bolted in. below is an exploded parts diagram of the ice maker. As you can see, the whole thing can be taken apart - of course you then have to put it back together. If it were me, I would toss it & replace the ice maker rather than try to disinfect/ sterilize the one in there. Good Luck!!

remove one screw on front left of ice maker, loosen two others-one in back and one on right, the ice maker will slide out. unhook wiring harness and the whole thing comes loose, couldn't figure out how to dismantle it but once I had it out of frig I let it warm up enough so the plastic would bend enuff to get it out.
